Was touring around the island and this seemed a natural place to stop. Would recommend it as a good place from which to see great wave and surfer action. Very Good

Just as I remembered from 40 years ago, this beach is not great for swimming. there is a lot of debris on sand and in the water. its too bad but maybe its proximity to the yacht harbor makes it inevitable.

A must see beach on the north shore!! great fun waves for beginners and loads of Honu (sea turtles) around in the shallows - so beautiful.

Haleiwa town is a throwback to old Hawaii, a little main street with lots of shops, galleries, and eateries to choose from. It is adjacent to the beach park and a flat easy walk. Do be sure to try a shave ice, a local treat, especially if you put a scoop of ice cream and black beans in the bottom.... More

If your looking for a beautiful beach location that's off the beaten path? Then Haleiwa Beach Park is where you want to go. It's big, clean, roomy and not over run with people. It's protected by a natural reef, so the water is always calm. Perfect for paddle boarding and beginner wind surfing.

Even if this is the only other place you visit on Oahu, it's worth a trip to Haleiwa to check out the beach park and the shops. The beach park area offers great spots for swimming and you can hire canoes, boards etc and have a crack at water sports in a safe environment. Haleiwa offers enough variety of food... More

My husband and I arrived here around 10am and spent the day with the beach to ourselves. It was very calm and relaxing. How often do you get to have an entire beach to yourselves!

The beach is gorgeous, lifeguards on duty, waves break at the point only when swell is big, long paddle out across a deep channel. Wave is fun, hollow and powerful. Across the beach there is the coolest colony style big house converted into a visitor's center, with a restaurant that serves delicious lunch type meals at a very reasonable price.... More

We got to go during the vans triple crown of surfing. Very interesting! We did go a few miles west toward ke'ana point and the waves were significantly bigger. Better view. But for a nice beach day, this was a good spot.
